From Our Director -

Welcome Summer!

Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to this warm, wonderful season of outdoor music, vacations, longer days, wildflowers, ice cream and holidays. I think we all have our own special summer memories tucked away from years past. It’s time to make new ones for 2018.

Start your summer planning now. It’s the best way to get the most out of this too-short season. However, having a plan doesn't mean you have to stick to old habits. There is so much going on in Little Falls and the Mohawk Valley this summer.

This quarter's edition of Art Matters! is chock full of ideas for things to do, places to go, and festivals to enjoy. It's time to enjoy an old tradition, or start a brand new one.

Perhaps you’re ready to give it a go at Hip Hop Fusion dance. Maybe you want to take in the colors and textures of the CNY Fiber Arts Festival. For some of you, this is the year you FINALLY make it to the Cheese Festival.

MVCA has new gallery exhibits by 2 local artists who both love bright colors. Joanne DeStefano is even offering a workshop to help you understand her techniques and medium.

Teens, get involved in the scholarship program to go see West Side Story at Glimmerglass Opera. It will be a full experience you’ll never forget. Finally, take some time to relax, have a lemonade, and smell the flowers.

Summer is a great time to think about all the ways that Art Matters!
